With that other baby top done, I can get back to working on my Christmas quilts. First up is my brothers outhouse quilt. The centre is done, but I needed to get working on the next border.
That called for MORE friendship stars! 20 of the to be exact. But because they are all the same, they were perfect for chain piecing.
I started by turning my stack of squares into HSTs using the eight-at-a-time method. The sewing goes pretty quick, it’s the trimming of said HSTs that really slows things down.
Especially when you have 160 HSTs to trim! My special handy dandy ruler helps, but it’s still a slog.
After what seemed like an eternity, they were trimmed, ironed open, and laid out into the block. Chain assembly could finally begin!
Those are some fun little friendship stars, if I do say so myself! And now I am 20 steps closer to having this top complete!
